Tuesday Teasers: Two Non-Fiction Books


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Gerard's:
Tonight it was a more ominous din, and not just the rain, either. The woods outside were alive with barking dogs, roaring flames, and men screaming her son's name.
From page 6 of A Case For Solomon--Bobby Dunbar and The Kidnapping That Haunted a Nation by Tal McThenia and Margaret Dunbar Cutright.

Karen's:
As Jeff stood in the narrow corridor that was the passageway between the cages and the open area, he realized there was simply nowhere to go or to hide from the eight-hundred-pound giant lumbering toward him. He considered blasting the bear with the hose, but instantly dismissed the thought.
From page 40 of All God's Creatures--Spiritual Lessons From The Animals Of The Bible by Gary Richmond.

Happy Reading!

  5. Both books sound like they're worth reading. Great teasers from both.
    Mine is from a sweet historical romance - THE SAMURAI'S GARDEN.
